Re: #HackerPickupLines
I've been aware of the Taylor Swift Infosec account for some time; a friend and colleague of mine is really into it and frequently reposts those items.  They're pretty funny -- although I'm not much of a Taylor Swift fan.

The NSA PR account reminds me of a phone prank somebody pulled on the NSA shortly after the Snowden news broke.  Somebody called the NSA claiming that they had accidentally deleted some important emails and asked to speak to someone about getting those emails back from the NSA's purported backups.
